Hogweed Gardens is Steve and Judith De St Croix who live in North Kent with their four children and various pets. Steve works as a gardener, mainly in London. Together Steve and Judith offer a Garden Design Service and re-make several gardens a year. Our latest venture is selling meadow flower seeds and plants at fairs and markets. We are interested in wildlife and the environment.

From London town gardens and urban meadows to English cottage gardens and green-roofs on chicken houses, plants are the most important element in our gardens and designs. 

About Hogweed Gardens

Steve trained in Amenity Horticulture before studying landscaping and garden design at Merrist Wood College in Surrey. 

Judith went to West Surrey College of Art and Design and has a degree in Textiles and once worked as a Secondary school Art Teacher in Kent. She now works on admin and design projects and made this website.

What We Do

If you are looking to improve your outside space contact us: we are flexible and can manage a partial garden makeover or a complete garden re-design.

We love traditional romantic leafy gardens but appreciate the modern need for something more manageable. 

So if you want good old-fashioned lawns and flower-beds we can do that. But we also know about modern green-roofs, urban chicken houses, ornamental flower meadows, micro-allotments; gardening in an ecological, life-style sensitive way.

Marketing meadow seeds and plants is very exciting: the product is contemporary, colourful and can look stunning while also being wildlife friendly. Ornamental annual and perennial meadows create biodiversity, and the cost per square metre can be very low. Perfect if you run a country estate, ideal if you own a sunny window-box.

Here is a gallery showing some of the gardens we are involved with and other recent projects.
